What happens when you give bright and engaged students real-world sustainability problems to solve?
UBC’s Sustainability Scholars are helping to make real change in the world. Join us on September 29 to learn more about what our local governments and institutions are doing to future-proof our people, our cities, our urban spaces, and the Fraser Estuary.
You will enjoy an afternoon of engaged discussion on a diverse range of applied sustainability projects produced by UBC graduate students in collaboration with community partners including the City of Vancouver, Metro Vancouver, BC Hydro, Translink, and many other local governments, local health authorities, and NGOs from across BC.
Scholars will present their research in concurrent themed panel sessions throughout the afternoon. Panels will be moderated by experts from UBC and Sustainability Scholars Program partners.
